Default Fender rolling advice?

The car has an issue with my front wheels rubbing the fenders if I turn and hit a bump just right or if I hit a large enough dip in the road.

I donít want everything-and-its-brother getting slang up in my fenders, so I see the necessity of having them but also have the need to flare the fenders, and it doesnít look like Iíd be able to reattach the liner properly correct.

For those of you who have rolled your fenders, what have you done with your fender liners/splash guards?

It mostly is (99.999%), but I have this problem on occasion, mainly when turning in my driveway.

I guarantee Iím lower than you and I still have fender liners in tact. Youíre running too big of a wheel, or too much tire.

Theyíre 16x7, but I have not measured the offset. They were something I got off a donor car and had painted that I put on.

Also, the tires are 205/45ís. They sit pretty much even with the rim.

If Iím not mistaken I think you have a Jswap. And the added weight, drop, 205ís, and 16ís could all be playing a factor here. IMO.

Thank you for your advice. It really feels like you have a good bit of expertise here. And yes thereís a good bit of weight on the front here, and I had to sandwich some exhaust manifold flanges between the strut mounts and shock towers on the front. Yeah, thatís weird, but it works. Just ask the ladies how much a difference 1/2Ē can make.

Im a bit afraid of running 15ís, because I donít know which ones will clear my super awesome prelude brake calipers. So, 16ís it is. Lol

I found a set of different wheels locally that are 16x7 with a 40mm offset. Going to see how they fit.
